[Global Times correspondent in South Korea, Dao An, Global Times correspondent Han Wen, Global Times correspondent Fu Jiajun] According to South Korea's "Chosun Ilbo" report on the 15th, a large-scale anti-US rally broke out in the center of Seoul on the 13th.

Participants at the rally asked the South Korean government to suspend the planned joint South Korea-U.S. military exercise at the end of this month, and demanded "dissolution of the South Korea-U.S. alliance and withdrawal of U.S. troops stationed in South Korea."

The head of South Korea's "National Federation of Democratic Labor Associations", the initiator of this anti-US rally, said that he must fight against the US, which arbitrarily manipulates the fate of the Korean peninsula.

  According to reports, the "National Federation of Democratic Labor Associations" held the "8.15 National Labor Conference" and "8.15 Independent and Peaceful Reunification Conference" in front of Sungnyemun, Jung-gu, Seoul on the 13th.

According to South Korean police estimates, at least 6,000 people attended the rally that day, and most of the participants were members of the National Democratic Labor Association.

  Rally participants, wearing raincoats and holding balloons or banners that read "Against America" ​​and "Stop the War Exercise," chanted "The Korean-American War Alliance, let the (South Korean) laborers end it", "This land is not America's war base!" to oppose the Ulchi Freedom Shield, a joint South Korea-U.S. military exercise to be held at the end of this month.

Yang Kyung-soo, chairman of the "National Federation of Democratic Labor Associations," said in a speech at the rally that day that South Korea and the United States will conduct large-scale joint military exercises, and military exercises for "preparation" are no different from launching wars.

Yang Kyung-soo also said that "the Yoon Seok-hye government, which is trying to push the country into the flames of war, will not be tolerated."

According to South Korea's "Central Daily News" report on the 15th, some participants in the rally said, "What should disappear (from South Korea) is the coercion of the United States and the submission of the Yin Xiyue government."

  According to the relevant information submitted by the Ministry to the National Defense Committee of the National Assembly on August 1, the South Korean and the US military will launch a large-scale joint military exercise in three stages in late August.

The Ministry of National Defense of South Korea plans to integrate South Korea-US diplomacy, intelligence, military, economic and other elements of war suppression through joint exercises, and to master South Korea-US joint crisis management procedures.

  South Korea's "Chosun Ilbo" said on the 15th that South Korean President Yun Xiyue attended the ceremony to commemorate the 77th anniversary of liberation and delivered a speech on the same day.

In his speech, Yin Xiyue mentioned the idea of ​​a "bold plan", saying that if North Korea takes substantial denuclearization measures, the South Korean side will help North Korea "epoch-making improvement of economic conditions and residents' quality of life."

As soon as this statement came out, it was highly concerned by the Korean people.

  In her speech on the 15th, Yin Xiyue said that North Korea's denuclearization is indispensable to the realization of sustainable peace on the peninsula, Northeast Asia and the world.

He detailed the specific content of the "bold plan", including large-scale food support projects, power generation and transmission and distribution infrastructure support projects, port and airport modernization projects, technical support projects to increase agricultural production, hospital and medical infrastructure modernization projects etc.

  In fact, this is not the first time Yin Xiyue has mentioned a "bold plan" for North Korea.

Yonhap News Agency previously reported that the "bold plan" brewed by the South Korean Unification Ministry, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Defense and other relevant departments focuses on providing economic and trade cooperation and security guarantees with North Korea in stages based on North Korea's actual denuclearization measures, so as to promote North Korea's denuclearization. A virtuous circle of mutual trust with South and North Korea.

  South Korea's "Kookmin Ilbo" analyzed on the 15th that these contents are an inducement policy to guide North Korea to achieve substantial denuclearization.

The South Korean presidential palace even played the card of partially relaxing sanctions against North Korea.

Some analysts believe that this is a very effective concept that can lead North Korea to the negotiating table.

  According to a report by Yonhap News Agency on the 15th, a poll released by the public opinion polling agency Realmeter on the same day showed that President Yin Xiyue's policy favorable rate was 30.4%, and the negative rate was 67.2%.

This is the first time Yin Xiyue's approval rating has risen to above 30% after an 8-week interval.

Some public opinion believes that Yin Xiyue's "bold plan" on the anniversary of the liberation of liberation may also be considered to increase the public opinion support rate.
